This is probably the biggest project I have ever done. If you are doing a mansion, why do things halfway after all? So this lot include nearly everything I could think of. Inspired by this house plan.

The general idea was to keep a blue theme for reception rooms, shifting to red/pink for more private/family rooms and green for service rooms. As I kept some patterns from one area to another I think it still keeps a coherent ensemble. I really tried to exploit all Ambitions possibilities so you'll find all you need for independent careers!

List of rooms
Perfect garden, with a money tree (all fruits and vegetables from base game)
Game area for children
activities and statues everywhere
swimming pool in a lake! (I'm really really happy how that turned out)

Ground level
Two garages

First level
Exterior living room with chimney
Formal living room
Grand staircase
Formal dinning room
Butler pantry
enormous kitchen (including that lifetime reward for replicating meals)
breakfast nook
big two-stories family room

Second level
Guest bedroom with chimney and attached bathroom
Twin bedroom with chimney and attached bathroom
Nursery with attached bathroom
Master bedroom with chimney and study nook
Master bath
Laundry room
TV room
game room
activity room

Third level
child's room
treasure room

Everything is upgraded, either unbreakable or self-cleaning. As you can see, this mansion relies heavily on sim's made stuff. Many paintings everywhere (many masterpieces), cut gems, etc.

Games requirements
Ambitions is really necessary. No skipping that one.
Pets is only used to add pet-related objects, so it should work fine without it. The house is friendly for dogs and cats.
Island Paradise is used for one tree, should be fine without it.

Only free store content:
Earth Day
Eye of the Bolder ‘10 (Bryan The Valentine Bear)
Happy Valentines Day 2014! (Hanging Hearts)
Year of the Tiger
Year of the Rabbit

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

What a great house, I especially adore the landscaping of the front gardens!
Have you noticed that you've left one of the chimneys unfinished? It's missing the wallcovering on its top level.

Wow, this home is terrific! This must have taken you a long time to complete. The attention to detail is very good; I never have the patience to follow through and complete such an elaborate project. Well done, you are quite talented! :-)

Thank you everyone! I replaced the file with a version with wallpaper for the chimney and some missing tiles under the roof.

Ahah yes, taking into account the time to make all these paintings, finding this gems, it's probably hundred of hours. My biggest project, by far.

This seems to be a very expensive house with all those gems spreading everywhere, haha. I really like what you did with the pool. It is the closest thing I've seen on a sim house that resembles a natural pool and I would love to build one myself. Seeing what you've already done is wonderful and gives me lots of inspirations.
